The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) opened its 18th 
Plenipotentiary Conference in Guadalajara, Mexico on 4 October 2010. The 
ITU Plenipotentiary, held every four years, represents the highest 
authoritative body of the ITU. During this critical meeting, also known 
as PP10, Member States (there are 193 sovereign nation members) will 
determine the ITU's policy and strategic direction for the next four years.

Representatives from AfriNIC, APNIC, ARIN, and LACNIC have been present 
at the PP-10 and are actively engaging with governments on the 
resolutions relevant to the global Internet community, particularly as 
it pertains to the increasing interest of the ITU and some Member States 
in the management and distribution of Internet number resources.

The meeting is in it's final week where proposals are being brought to 
the plenary for readings and approval. As much of the documentation is 
restricted to member internal use (ARIN is a sector member) it is not 
possible to share much detail at this point. An information page has 
been created on the NRO website to inform the global Internet community 
on the resolution topics.

PP-10 on Twitter, there are two key Twitter hashtags in use: #PP10 and 
#adhocInternet. Webcasts from the main meeting sessions are also
